Fried Rice is a great way to use up all those left overs in the fridge. A couple of important tips for making a great Gluten Free fried rice:
1. Rice should be cooked the night before and cooled in the fridge. Trying to cook fried rice with warm rice is a nightmare! It must be cold or it will clump.
2. Prepare everything before hand so you can just throw them in the pan once it is hot. That way nothing is over cooked.
3. Use just a small amount off oil to coat the rice, then once you are frying use water to steam the ingredients. Small splashes of water is the key to stir frying.
4. Throw in anything and everything you can think of – corn, peas, ham, bacon, chicken, broccoli, onion, tomato, scrambled eggs… you name it.
These are the ingredients I used today:
1 cup of cooked rice
1 cup of left over stir fry – chicken, bacon, mushrooms, onion, garlic
1/4 cup red and yellow peppers
1/4 spanish onion
splash of Gluten Free tamari soy sauce
3-4 splashes of water
